Horrible Histories

Post by Cuchulainn » Mon January 23rd, 2012, 1:37 am

For those of you not already familiar, I thought you might be interested to know about the "Horrible History" series; a very smart and very funny educational program on history. You can check it out on Youtube. Here are links to my three favourite songs:

William Wallace, Scottish Rebel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3g61xASD-24

Celtic Boast Battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXgtZbrcxBQ

Charles II, King of Bling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2kyNbZc7oc

There's also some good ones about Cleopatra, Boudicca, and tonnes more!

Let me know what you think!

Love the books. Not entirely sure about the tv series, though. :p

I didn't care as much for the boast battle, but the other two were great! Didn't know Horrible Histories did songs. I'll have to look at more of them. Thanks for sharing.

Funny. I try to watch as many of these videos I can find.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

I wish I could hear the lyrics! The sound isn't working too well on my end. Maybe I'll try on my husband's computer.

I did a whole string of posting HH videos on my blog on Fridays last year. Lasted for about 3-4 months I think.
